A Court Of Thorns And Roses
A Court of Thorns and Roses - Sarah J. Maas

Image result for i loved it

 

So I have had this book for a while and i never read it simply because of all the hype that was behind the book series and I didn't want to read it and not enjoy it because I felt I had to like it because everyone else did.

 

I am so glad i did decide to read this book because it honestly deserves all the hype that it is getting. The chapters where so good that you always wanted to read more even the more detailed violent chapters where amazing. 

 

Now I don't normally like the main characters in books or movies or anything for that matter but oh my goodness Feyre was a total bad ass and i loved her she was so strong and inspiring because she had to learn really quick how to be an adult by looking after and providing for her family, also while learning about her you learn that she can't read and it was nice to see her overcome the hurdles that it brought up.

 

Sarah J Maas built the characters perfectly the romance was strong and i would even say new adult which was amazing I love beaty and the beast and I think this was an amazing adaptation of the story with fantasy.

 

I recommend this to anyone that has been on edge to read it, read the book you won't be disappointed if you love fantasy and beauty and the beast.

A Court of Mist and Fury / Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses Book 2) - Sarah J. Maas

Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world torn apart.

 

This is an enormous book. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I was able to conquer it, however.

The things I liked?
- Getting to see more of various fairy courts (Night and Summer, for instance).
- Seeing Tamlin’s “perfect” plans being derailed by Rhys, the charming bad boy.
- Feyre escaping the controlling relationship that she found herself in.
- Watching Feyre explore her new abilities.
- Seeing the set-up for an extreme Fae-Human war.

The things I wasn’t crazy about:
- This book could have been one third the size without all the angst about what Feyre feels, what she should do, was she being fair, all that crap that unnecessarily complicates relationships.
- It reinforces the “women like bad boys” sterotypes that plague us. Despite the fact that Rhys turns out to be a nicer guy that Tamlin in every way that is important.
- Yet another book which tells women that a relationship is the most important achievement in our lives, rather than our talents and accomplishments.

Basically, Feyre has gone from being a fragile human, needing protection, to a strong Fae woman who needs a supportive partner. Tamlin was her entrée into the Fairy realm, but once she returns with him to the Spring Court, he goes all controlling on her—restricting her contact with others, restricting her movements, and acting like an abusive spouse. I’m all for getting away from abusive partners.

The whole romance-y genre drives me crazy, because I enjoy the books, but the subtext messages in them drive me up the wall!

I wonder if Maas’ plan is to write a book set in each of the Fairy Courts? Despite my complaints, there is no doubt that I will be reading on, to see how things turn out.

Reading progress update: I've read 51 out of 432 pages.
Throne of Glass - Sarah J. Maas

Ugh! That man is a butt-hole!
Liking the book so far. Glad I was able to find the audio for it and give it another try. Hopefully I will finish this and go on to the next ones..preparing myself for what I think is more adult situations in this series. Or is that A Court of Thorns and Roses? Well, either way, I'l prepare myself, if I get that far along that is (fingers crossed) :-)

Fellow booklikers' posts (like http://bookstooge.booklikes.com/post/1543510/my-little-po-ahem-tbr ) reminded me to check.  Actual reading sequence of published books will more realistically vary by what becomes available at library and my moods, of course.
